Polar's new smart scale wants to help you lose a few pounds
The $99 Polar Balance wants to give you a new way to manage your diet and exercise. The scale can do more than just measure your weight, and may actually be able to help you shed some of that holiday excess.
Here's how it works: You begin by setting a target weight in the Polar Flow mobile app on Android or iOS. The Balance scale will then help you reach this weight using data from Polar Flow and a compatible Polar fitness tracker.
Each time you weigh in with the Balance, the data will automatically be shared to your Polar fitness tracker. This will help keep you motivated to reaching your weight-loss goal. Each day the tracker will also display an activity goal that is tailored to you based on your desired weight loss.
It's the size of a quarter and can help you track down almost anything you've lost.
